What was the greatest game of the last generation?

"Now that the Wii U has finally been released in North America, ushering in a new generation of home consoles with it, we here at Gamer Nation have decided to look back at the games released on the Gamecube, PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC in order to finally settle the question of just what was the greatest game of the last generation?" (GameCube, PC, PS2, Xbox)

Well my personal choice would have to be Socom 2 considering how many hours I lost to that.

That and GTA San Andreas.
Wenis  +   975d ago
Yep, SWBF2 was my most played and most enjoyed game last gen too.
XB1_PS4  +   975d ago
I'm Thinking Halo 1 + 2, and I really liked Metroid Prime.
meevil  +   975d ago
The original Metroid Prime was amazing.
XB1_PS4  +   975d ago
Damn son, most disagrees for me ever! I pushed on some heart strings.. Sorry guys. lol
HammadTheBeast  +   975d ago
Just people that disagree with your opinion. Disagrees/Agrees mean nothing here.
UnSelf  +   975d ago
It's more than likely San Andreas. The game itself had elements of every single game posted in here
TAURUS-555  +   975d ago
starwars: batlefront 2, it was piece of art.
Blastoise  +   975d ago
My personal fave games of last gen are (in no order)

Okami
Zelda Wind Waker
Resident Evil 4
Shadow Of the Colossus
Animal Crossing
Rogue Galaxy (Why does nobody care about this game?)
Final Fantasy 12
Halo
Knights of the old republic
Dark Chronicle
God of war 2
Metal gear solid 3
GTA Vice City
Super Smash Bro's Melee
Timesplitters 2

There are probably more, but these are the stand out games from the top of my head

Welshy  +   975d ago

MGS3: Snake Eater on PS2.
FanboyPunisher  +   975d ago
SOCOM US NAVY SEALS PS2
Best competitive game i've ever played, this gen is a downgrade from what we already had.

Shadow of the Colossus.
brodychet  +   974d ago
Kingdom Hearts for me.
TheLyonKing  +   975d ago
Am slightly biest as I love the series but Kingdom Hearts 1 as it was such a brave concept that worked so well, you would never see such risks taken during this gen
meevil  +   975d ago
Amazing series. Really hope we see a reprisal soon.
Sizzon  +   975d ago
Halo: CE
Halo 2
GTA: Vice City
GTA: San Andreas
Kingdom Hearts
Kingdom Hearts 2
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Some of my favourite games from last gen :)

For me it was Jak 3 or Kingdom Hearts 2. I played those two games so much. But there were a ton of great games last generation.

I am upset that I had to scroll to the 6th comment to see this fantastic. But I am glad that someone else thought of it.

Xenosaga, Metal Gear Solid 2
Hicken  +   975d ago
Xenosaga had the potential to usurp FF as my favorite rpg series of all time. But #2 was just so meh. I suffered through it, and it wasn't bad; it just didn't live up to the high standards set by the first. The third brought that quality back, but was also a downer because you knew you would never get the three games that were supposed to come after it.

As for what I think the greatest game was, I'll just say the PS2 library and leave it at that. Far too many games(on the GC, DC and Xbox as well, but the sheer number on PS2 was overwhelming) to even attempt singling out ONE.

Persona 4, Shadow of the Colossus, Okami, Grandia 2.... just too many of them.
False-Patriot  +   974d ago
To me, Episode 1 is the worst, mainly because of ridiculous battle system and boring storyline. On the other hand, the third episode is one of the best JRPGs ever made. But I don't think it is right to compare the episodes to each other.
momthemeatloaf  +   975d ago
Super Mario sunshine
San Andreas
Vice city
Socom
Halo 1 and 2
Ssx
Resident evil 4

To me these were the games that defined last gen

God of War 2 easily with God of War in second place.
oORafzOo  +   975d ago
Game cube
game cube was awesome I really enjoyed playing zelda the wind waker on it
Deku-Johnny  +   975d ago
Kingdom Hearts 2, Timesplitters Future Perfect, Wind Waker, San Andreas, Mario Sunshine, Jak 3, Jak X, Metroid Prime, Shadow of Colossus and Battlefront 2 are definitely the top games of the 6th gen. I don't know what I'd say is the best, probably KH2.
SecretPsycho  +   975d ago
For me timesplitters 2 :3
FarCryLover182  +   975d ago
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory for me
TooTall19  +   975d ago
GC: Windwaker
PS2: Dark Cloud 2
XBox: Halo 2
Gamesgbkiller  +   975d ago
JAK & DAXTER !!!!!
DaPrintz  +   975d ago
God of War, Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, Kingdom Hearts2, and Prince of Persia: Warrior Within were my favorites. Devil may Cry3 was right there too. Ninja Gaiden was bad ass too. Way too many to consider though.

Jet Set Radio Future on the Xbox is one of the most enjoyable platforming games that I've ever played.
And that choice at least honours the Dreamcast where the series started. Sonic Adventure 2 on the DC and GC is very good by the way.

On PS2, Silent Hill 3 and Resident Evil 4 (on Cube first) must both have a shout for survival horror games.

The first Metroid Prime game was special.

I do wish that I had played San Andreas because I like the location. At least GTA5 looks more likely to give me a taste of what I missed than GTA4 ever did. New York has just never done it for me in a game, it's gridblock streets are too predictable and we all know that it's one of the safest big cities in serious crimes per head nowadays anyway.

Super Mario Sunshine was OK, Mario controlled well but the holiday theme was too restrictive and surely Galaxy is better. The Wind Waker looked and sounded beautiful but it also seemed restrictive because of being set on small islands.
